Premier voyage en France avec bébé
You want to go on vacation this summer with your baby for the first time? You are probably wondering where to go on vacation with a baby and at what age he can go on vacation
First vacation with baby in France
Our country is full of varied landscapes. You can choose between the sea, the mountains or even the forest, all this only a few hours away from home.
Vacations by the sea with baby
The sea air is known to be particularly appreciated by babies. You can choose between the Mediterranean or the Atlantic.
To enjoy the nice weather, the sea and the little waves, nothing better than the French Riviera. We are not going to spit on it, we come from the south ourselves, we have the impression to be on vacations almost all year long!
Then, even if we adore our so beautiful region and all the French Riviera, we warn you: avoid this destination in full summer period. Many tourists come to the Côte d'Azur every year, the beaches and all the tourist places are quickly crowded. In addition, in the middle of summer it can easily reach 35°C. These are not ideal temperatures for babies. Choose this destination out of season, when the sun is not so strong and the tourists are not so present.
The Atlantic Ocean has a more family-oriented side and is more peaceful. The beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, you will not step on them! For the more sporty, pedal on kilometers of cycle tracks. You can't miss it! The bikes can be equipped with a cart for children. This is ideal for family rides and to put the kids to sleep during the ride. Take advantage of this opportunity to admire the most beautiful sunsets on the Atlantic, a new show is offered to you every evening! Labenne, Cap Ferret or Belle Ile are perfect destinations to do with a young child.
The advantage of these family destinations is that they are full of kid friendly campsites and regularly offer activities for all ages! Some vacation destinations also have kids clubs. It's perfect to enjoy a few hours of respite (that's what a real vacation is all about!)
What better way to recharge your batteries than in the mountains?
The fresh air in the middle of summer is often very appreciated by young children. You will be able to go for many hikes in the forest, with an ultra comfortable baby carrier. Calmness and serenity will be the order of the day for these vacations in the middle of nature!
Be careful with the altitude! Babies do not tolerate altitude very well, their little bodies are not adapted to these conditions where oxygen is scarce. Avoid altitude above 1500m for a baby under 1 year old and not above 1800m for a baby under 2 years old. The more your baby grows, the higher the altitude you can go. But always ask a doctor's advice and make several stops (small breaks to get used to the altitude).
Get closer to Annecy, between city and mountain, there is something for everyone! It is a small and welcoming town, perfect for family vacations.
For the frequent travelers, lovers of far away destinations, bet on the DOM-TOM, it is good all year round.
Be careful only during the rainy season, which is not very fun to explore with a baby.
Traveling by car with a baby
If you have decided to travel by car, organization is essential. Have you traded in your fiat 500 for a family car? You did the right thing, because baby's stuff will take up 50% of your trunk capacity... Between the stroller, the crib, baby's travel bag and your own... you'll never have been so loaded.
And no, it's not a myth: the smaller they are, the more space they take up!
For those many hours of car travel with your baby, remember to take some toys and a mobile. He will sleep most of the time (normally). During his waking moments, always have something to occupy him. In fact, you can also try the night trip! There's a better chance that baby will fall asleep lulled by the car. Find out more about carrying baby in the car
At what age can baby go on vacation
There are no specific recommendations to answer this question. But you probably don't want to travel with an infant. It is often recommended to wait a few weeks or even months before traveling with a baby. You and the baby need time to adapt, to get used to each other and to your habits...
Also, traveling with a baby requires a lot of organization. You have to be ready for it. The more they grow, the easier it will become.
